Perfect replacement for ISP router

Excellent device. Purchased as we were having issues with our ISP standard router that weren't resolved after several interactions. This was easy to set up and very easy to use, including the handy Tether app which makes management straight forward. Internet speeds slightly higher than we could get on our ISP router (when it was working). Has so far been running for 4 weeks or so, without any issues or need to reset the router. WiFi signal much stronger throughout house than with previous router also. Highly recommended.

Not what I was told it was

Attendant told me this was a modem and router in one but it isn't, returns process is so tedious I never bothered. Be careful when listening to what the shop staff say about products as this doesn't do what I told the attendant I wanted it to do
